2nd Annual Home Run Derby & Hit a Thon

Oct 27, 2021 11:26 AM

Buckingham Youth Baseball is excited to announce the date for our 2nd Annual Home Run Derby & Hit a Thon, on December 4th 2021!  Last year's event was a huge success and a ton of fun!  So this year we decided to add to the fun by inviting coaches and assistant coaches to participate as well! Please see official rules below, and remember, the Home Run Derby is a point based system, so your player doesn't have to hit one over the fence to win- the farther they hit, the more points they earn.  This is a great opportunity for your player to have fun, hit some dingers, and raise some money for the league. Your player won't want to miss out on the fun!  We have some amazing prizes lined up for this year! We will have a 1st and 2nd place winner for the derby in each division, as well as 1st and 2nd prizes for the most funds raised for our Hit a Thon.  Parents will be receiving emails shortly from 99 Pledges with your players unique fundraiser page. Or you can visit www.99pledges.com/fund/buckingham2021 and search for your players name.
